Greater Spokane Incorporated Project Lead the Way Pilot Testimonial (pdf)

Shelly Howenstine, VP of Quality, VMRD, Inc.

VMRD did have success with the viral transport media! We have a few new products that we’re working on, but none under the FDA umbrella. If we delve into that market again or other new territories, we will happily reach out to you. I appreciate the great assistance with all the FDA/medical device questions/help we needed!

Meg Lindsay, Director of Education and Talent, Greater Spokane Inc./Spokane STEM Network

Katrina Rogers utilized her expertise in strategic planning to work with our team and community stakeholders to develop a strategic goal statement and core directional choices in connecting K-12 student candidates with the biomed/tech industries in career launch opportunities. This process resulted in a clearly defined map providing guidance for focusing our efforts over the next 2 years. Through these efforts, stakeholders have been identified as well as core directional strategies determined for each stakeholder audience. Katrina’s process includes important aspects of assessment and improvements as we work to create a positive feedback loop with our stakeholders.

Barbara Berglund, COO at CMC Turnkey Solutions

Katrina always handles the ever-changing environment of the CMO business with professionalism and a positive attitude. She learned the keys to pharmaceutical quality excellence quickly and is an asset to the laboratory as a whole.

Paul Hara, Senior Director of Operational Strategy and Planning, Covance

Katrina Rogers is an outstanding technical director for DMPK. I have worked with her over the last 6 years and during that time have been privileged to see her make the transition from being a top-notch manager to a very effective and influential technical director. She has established herself as an important member of our Pharmacology technical directors’ team over this last year through her conscientious efforts. Utilizing her understanding of Operations, Katrina has expanded her role as technical director to include a more global view of our Customers’ overall needs. This has greatly empowered her to proactively seek out solutions for her Clients and colleagues. Katrina has also taken her commitment to great Customer Services to a new level of understanding as she seeks to provide both innovative and strategic solutions for both her clients as well as for MDS Pharma Services. We need more people like Katrina who can come up with the “Win-Win” solutions!

Kim Black-Washington, Account Director, Catalent Pharma Solutions

Katrina Rogers can deliver. She knows her science. She is an excellent manager. She is no-nonsense and professional at all times. She does not engage in work that doesn’t add organizational value. She holds others to high standards, and is valuable in bringing positive organizational change.

Susan Wang, Commercial Development Asia Pacific, BTG

Katrina is extremely detail-oriented and has very strong work ethics. She is a great scientist and a very fair manager. She is also very proactive in areas outside of her job duty to facilitate the positive growth of the company. I completely enjoy working with Katrina and view her as a tremendous asset of our team.
